asked the Secretary of State for Transport what his policies are for investment in roads; and if he will make a statement.
I have placed in the Library of the House copies of "Policy for Roads in England: 1987" presented to the House today. This White Paper is in two volumes. Volume 1 describes the Government's current policies for the development of both the trunk and the local road system in England. Volume 2 outlines the national trunk road construction programme and reports progress since the last comprehensive review. It also sets out the results of my 1987 review and gives details of the 82 new road schemes that I have added to the forward programme.
